Sho Baraka

Sho was born Amisho Baraka Lewis in Canada. He was raised in California, but also lived in Texas. Sho was introduced to rap at an early age. This early exposure led to his forming a rap group with friends in high school. His life took a turn for the better when several of his group members were killed or jailed for the gangsta life they had pursued. Taking his father's advice, he pursued education, leading to eventually meeting Lecrae and Tedashii and co-founding Reach Records with them.
